Nolan Christensen

Student at Iowa State University majoring in Architecture-Professional Degree
I am a holistic planner and designer of all things environmental, architectural, landscape, interior, industrial, and graphic. My work encompasses everything from the realms of disaster relief product design for a renewable energy domestic generator for situations like Puerto Rico, to luxury high-rise hotel design and development in Panama, to graphic design for organizations, to infrastructural redesign of a metro station in Rome (to name a few). Most of my work has either been implemented within an organization or firm, has been awarded for excellence in design, or has encouraged CEOs of companies to invest. I have worked for various architecture firms as a design consultant for principal architects within architecture firms as well as started my own endeavor as a product designer. No endeavor is too small or too big, and collaboration is the key to all success. I am seeking collaboration with those who share the same vision for all-encompassing design that everyone can benefit from.
